Over the weekend, we had dinner with some friends and I was told to bring an "adult dessert." Well, when you attach the word "adult" to food or drink, my mind goes to one place... booze. I started to think about all the possibilities - rum, tequila, wine - but with football on in the background I settled on beer. Specifically, my favorite beer of all the beers in the land, Guinness! I've cooked with the dark stout before (here and here) and have always loved the results, so when I found this recipe I had a feeling it would be a hit. You can't go wrong when you pair Guinness with chocolate, and that is a fact. A fact! These cookies were intensely rich with chocolate flavor, and I definitely tasted a nice hint of the dark beer as well. The perfect "adult" treat for fall and football. Cheers!
